By Suburban Railway & Taxi / Car
In Athens, the last years a new rail route is created from Athens International Airport and from Piraeus, with the Athens Suburban Railway that goes to Kiato, a nice village before Korinthos.
So either your landing is in Athens International Airport, either your boat arrives in Piraeus, you may take the route that goes to Kiato and one stop before you reach its terminal to disembark in Korinthos.
From there you may have arranged a transfer, take a taxi or either get a car rental and reach the town of Astros.
The duration of the train route is at about 1:00 to 1:30 hours and from Korinthos to Astros at about 1:30 hours with a normal and secured driving attitude, since the roads as always, globally, need of our full attention.
